New Delhi, Oct 27 (IANS) There was a nip in the air in Delhi Wednesday as the maximum temperature dipped two notches below the average for this time of the year.

According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Wednesday’s maximum temperature was 30.2 degrees Celsius. The minimum was an average 17 degrees Celsius.

“Snowfall in Jammu and Kashmir and the wind pattern over northwest India have brought down the temperatures in Delhi. This is the first indication that Delhi is getting colder,” an IMD official said.

“One will feel the chill especially during the early mornings and late evenings,” the official added.

People were seen draping light shawls and sweatshirts.

Aruna Dey, an office goer said: “I leave home at seven in the morning and these days, it’s really chilly at that time. So I usually drape a shawl. As the day advances, it gets warm but in the evening it gets cold again. I guess winters are here.”

The maximum temperature Tuesday was 30.5 degrees Celsius, while the minimum stood at 16.5 degrees.
